The Samuel L. Jackson and Ryan Reynolds action comedy The Hitman's Bodyguard has taken the top spot at the box office this weekend with an estimated $21.6 million in grosses from 3,337 theaters, according to studio estimates Sunday. Despite largely mediocre reviews, The Hitman's Bodyguard easily outdid Steven Soderbergh's well-reviewed heist pic Logan Lucky, the AP reports.
Logan, starring Channing Tatum and Daniel Craig, drew in only $8.1 million from 3,031 theaters for an underwhelming third-place start, behind the horror pic Annabelle: Creation, which grossed $15.5 million in its second weekend in theaters. Rounding out the top five were Dunkirk, with $6.7 million, and The Nut Job 2: Nutty by Nature, with $5.1 million. (Read more Samuel L. Jackson stories.)
